You Can Make Ice Cream in a Mason Jar with Four Ingredients

A bowl of mason jar ice cream with sprinkles, whipped cream, and a cherry

It’s officially July, and it’s hot out. Thankfully, there a quick and easy way to cool down: ice cream. Turns out, you can make it in a mason jar.

When you think of homemade ice cream, you likely image those machines that require loads of ice and a giant spinner or having to churn said ice cream for hours by hand. That’s not true. All you need to create a simple (but delicious) is a mason jar and four ingredients.

The recipe calls for heavy cream, vanilla extract, granulated sugar, and a pinch of salt. There’s a high chance you either already have these items (especially if you’re a baker) or can easily get your hands on them at your local grocery store.

To create the four-ingredient ice cream, simply combine the components in the mason jar and shake until the mixture become a thick whipped texture that sticks to a spoon. Once that consistency has been reached, freeze it for at least three hours. When time is up, boom! You have ice cream.

And you though mug cakes were the greatest invention ever.
